The olfactory impact is very intense, with a predominance of black fruits. On the palate it is powerful and full-bodied, where the fresh varietal aromas of Sangiovese combined with the primary fruity notes form an incredibly complex spectrum of flavors, without sacrificing the freshness and drinkability that are the basis of our production.
2015 is only our fourth release of Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, a milestone in the history of our company. Riserva in vigna was born, when we realized we had something different and very special. After our usual long spontaneous fermentations, this Reserve was aged for 54 months in a single 30 hl barrel, plus another 18 months in bottle. A rare wine that perfectly reflects our belief.

Wine Advocate

The Le Potazzine 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is released a year after most other Riservas hit the market (most of this winery's peers are now selling the 2016 vintage). This pretty wine is open-knit and rich, showing nice textural support. It is redolent of dried cherry, blackberry, light spice, tar and smoke. This special selection of fruit shows elegant results in this hot and sunny vintage.

This is a late-release 2015 with extremely attractive blackberry, black-cherry and floral aromas, as well as hints of spices. Full-bodied with wonderfully integrated tannins that are polished yet powerful. Long, persistent finish, showing real purity of fruit. Try after 2023, but already impressive.
